I just received a notice from WND where they cite a newspaper article quoting a terrorist who is behind the rocket attacks on Israel.
When the terrorist was asked why they couldn't aim their rockets better, the terrorist said, "Their God is re-directing our rockets".
Praise God. He said He would protect Israel. God doesn't lie. Those terrorists actually acknowledge "Their God". You'd think they would actually turn to this powerful God. I hope they do!
Who Benefits the Most From the Illegal Immigration of Guatemalan’s?
Will the President of Guatemala, Otto Perez Molina benefit? Will the CEO and main shareholder of Fresh Del Monte Produce, Inc, Mohammad Abu-Ghazaleh benefit? Will the Rothschild's who appear to hold shares in every major Fortune 500 company and their corporate veils like Blackrock Institutional Trust Company benefit? Will the Catholics, Mormons and other churches benefit? Only one thing is for darn sure, it will not be the United States of America who will benefit.
Let’s begin with President Molina who studied at the Inter-American Defense College in Washington D.C. and during his 30 year military career achieved the rank of General. His goal is to achieve higher security in Guatemala and to eradicate hunger under his Zero Hunger Pact. The Clinton Global Initiative, always ready with its hand out when there is "crisis" hand-out money available, helped bring together a partnership to support Molina’s Zero Hunger Plan. Also the USDA has been involved in Feed the Future, the "U.S. Government's Global Hunger and Food Security Initiative."
With all this international attention and funding, why then are nearly one-half of Guatemalan children under the age of five still chronically malnourished, one of the highest malnutrition rates in the world? Do you think that the emigration of his people to the USA matters to President Molina, knowing that his primary source of foreign income, equivalent to nearly TWO-FIFTHS of exports or ONE-TENTH of the national GDP comes from Guatemalan relatives living in the USA, sending money back to their relatives residing in Guatemala?
What does Fresh Del Monte Produce have to do with all of this? At the height of its power, the United Fruit Company (now known as Fresh Del Monte Produce) owned a staggering 42% of the entire country of Guatemala and paid not one cent in tax on it. The same company owned the railways, the telephone system, the ports and a large fleet of ships built by some of the finest shipyards in the world. In addition to the creme de la creme of Boston society and Rockefeller banking interests, there were other very important people associated with the company; for example, there was Nelson Rockefeller's former assistant at the State Department, John Moors Cabot (part of the Cabot-Lodge nexus), who owned a large block of stock in United Fruit (he later wrangled for himself a convenient ambassadorship to Guatemala); then there was John's brother, Thomas C. Cabot, Jr., who briefly served as president of United Fruit; there was also John J. McCloy, later closely associated with the CIA and the World Bank; there was also John Foster Dulles, head of the Rockefeller Foundation and later head of the U.S. State Department, and his brother Allen, who became CIA Chief under President Eisenhower - and on and on ad infinitum. It was a Who's Who of some of this nation's wealthiest families - pretty much the same ivy league crowd who later took over the CIA and the State Department after World War II.
In 1944 the people of Guatemala overthrew the fascist right-wing dictator then in power, Jorge Ubico and Guatemala held its first true election in history. They elected Dr. Juan Arevalo Bermej to the presidency. A new constitution was drawn up based on the U.S.Constitution. At the time, only 10% of the land was available for use by the natives. Arevalo was succeeded in another free election by Jacobo Arbenz who continued the reform process and proposed to redistribute some of the unused land and make it available to farm. This is when the elite corporate globalists cried foul and began a propaganda campaign that included Ed Whitman, United Fruit’s top public relations officer and the husband of Ann Whitman, President Eisenhower’s private secretary. (Ed Whitman produced a film, “Why the Kremlin Hates Bananas) Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward L. Bernays also conducted psychological warfare and embarked on a campaign that included aggressive propaganda tactics. Also, a study group led by Adolf Berle, a businessman inexorably linked to Rockefeller interests in Latin America also served on the board of the Society for the investigation of Human Ecology, a foundation the CIA created as a cover for MK- Ultra, a code name for covert methodologies to manipulate individual mental states and alter brain functions, including the surreptitious administration of drugs and other chemicals, sensory deprivation, isolation, and verbal and sexual abuse. It was a successful Coup Made in America! (Video)
United Fruit later changed its name and ownership several times until it eventually became known as Fresh Del Monte Produce. Fresh Del Monte was spun off to Mexican owners who faltered and then it fell into the hands of the Mexican government. In 1996 Fresh Del Monte was purchased by a Palestinian who had made a fortune importing bananas to the Middle East. The company is incorporated in the Cayman Islands a Caribbean tax haven for the last reported Fresh Del Monte profits of $145 million dollars. Abu-Ghazaleh owns a majority of the stock in the company and he is listed as one of the top 500 most powerful Arabs in the world, and also serves as a Director of Jordan Kuwait Bank. After Abu-Ghazaleh bought the company, the minority shareholders sued him claiming that he had purchased the company for half its price by bribing a Mexican government official. The payment was proven, but the lawsuit failed. Could that be because Marvin Bush, the brother of President Bush, joined the Board of Directors of Fresh Del Monte in 1998 and served on the board’s critically important audit and compensation committees until 2002.(some say even longer than that)
Currently on the Board of Directors of Fresh Del Monte is John H Dalton who interestingly also serves as the President of the Housing Policy Group of the Financial Services Roundtable in Washington, D.C., an invitation only financial services lobbying and advocacy organization located in Washington D.C. that donates heavily to both Republicans and Democrats. What is his current position at Fresh Del Monte? He is a member of the Audit and Compensation Committee’s!
Fresh Del Monte Produce’s partners include Feeding America which provides food assistance to more than 25 million low-income people facing hunger in the United States. So, while the USDA is busy handing out food to the starving Guatemalans with its Feed the Future program, Fresh Del Monte whose plantation workers all over Central America are malnourished, is feeding poor Americans! Make sense?
Corporate America, the State Department and the CIA all seem to be implicated in the Guatemala story, but there is also a fourth member of the team: the American Evangelical community. History demonstrates that the CIA used Protestant missionaries to great effect in the Philippines. They had been "employed" in that country in a CIA campaign against the Huks, along with an airborne leaflet program. The CIA has enlisted the support of Christian missionaries over and over again...so why should Guatemala be any different? There have been inferences of leaflets instructing Guatemalans how to emigrate to the United States and what their rights are once there. Are CIA operatives involved…or their Christian pawns?
The current population of the Republic of Guatemala is estimated to be about 15.44 million and their major religion is Roman Catholicism. The next largest religion is Protestantism and Guatemalans are among a growing number of Latin Americans who have turned to Mormonism in the last few years. The Mormon emphasis on traditional family values is an appealing characteristic as well as the idea of being part of a modern day, global organization. The most recent Quetzaltenango Guatemala MormonTemple sits on 6.47 acres and totals 21,085 square feet. Are the baptismal "Waters of Mormon" located on Atitlan Lake in Guatemala? Does Glenn Beck know this? Are religious groups vying for the attention of Guatemalans and are they grandstanding to gain more followers?
In summation, President Molina stands to benefit from the emigration of his poorest. Abu-Ghazaleh will benefit from the cheap and ready labor for his plants in the USA, while the global elite look forward to benefit from increased profits at Del Monte Fresh Produce. The churches will be “used” to advance the New World Order as they compete to become the One World religion. The Clintons will continue to spew their humanitarian mockery while promoting the Rockefeller Foundation on their web site, including a commitment by the Rockefeller Foundation to invest $100 million dollars in creating 100 “Resilient Cities” with 100 Chief Resilience Officers to oversee them. This Youtube which can be found on the Clinton Global Initiative site is a must watch!
There are over 15 million people in the Republic of Guatemala. There are almost 8 million people in Honduras. If the Rockefeller’s and the Clintons and the Bush’s and the Obama’s were really concerned....why not set up a $23 Million dollar foundation that would give a one time quarter million dollars to each and every resident in the Republics of Guatemala and Honduras and use the leftover funds to help build schools, hospitals and infrastructure, using local labor? Then, shore up our American borders with high tech equipment, fencing and added Border Patrol agents using all the money we are currently sending overseas to CIA Muslim operatives. Why not suggest to Obama now that Ramadan is over, instead of celebrating by going on his mulit-million dollar, 16 day vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, that we use the multi-million dollar taxpayer paid vacation money to fund this innovative plan and at the same time solve both our immigration AND deportation problems! But all dreaming aside, a solution is not the issue here. Who benefits the most from illegal immigration? The Large Families That Rule the World.
This immigration problem is not about solutions, it is about creating a crisis and about the fundamental transformation of America.
LMAO, It amazes me, they act like this big Terrorist group is a humungous threat, when in fact CIA created them.
Great Job CIA, Congrats on your new Terrorist Army you have created.

Wednesday at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on the invasion of Iraq by the militant group ISIS, Brett McGurk, deputy assistant secretary of state, said The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) “is al Qaeda... it may have changed its name, but it is al Qaeda. In fact, it is worse than al Qaeda."
The U.S. official warned that with its successful surge capturing both financial and military assets in Iraq, ISIS is “no longer a terrorist organization. It is a full-blown army."
Not sure if we're digging ourselves out of this one. I think it's too late and Obastard has put the nail in the coffin just as has been planned and yet, many stupid Americans refuse to WAKE UP
Exactly 70 years ago to the day, hundreds of delegates from 44 nations were busy at work in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire creating a brand new financial system.
World War II had just ended. Europe was in ruin.
And since the US was simultaneously the largest economy in the world, the primary victor in the war, and the only major power with its productive capacity intact, it was easy to dictate terms: the dollar would dominate the new system.
Every nation would hold dollars as the primary reserve currency, and the dollar would be redeemable for gold at $35/ounce.
Also, global commerce would be conducted and settled in dollars, and these settlements would clear through the US banking system.
Naturally this created substantial demand from foreign governments who needed to begin accumulating dollars for trade and reserves.
So through a variety of programs, from the Marshall Plan to the IMF and World Bank, the US began flooding the world with dollars.
Initially everything went according to plan.
But soon the US government realized something important– foreign demand for the dollar was so strong that they could get away with printing more dollars than they had gold.
This allowed them to run all sorts of deficits and spending initiatives– more war, more welfare, more waste… all with minimal accountability.
Initially the consequences were insignificant.
Sure, the price of gold in London was a few dollars higher than in the US (they called this the ‘gold window’).
But demand for the dollar was still strong. So why bother changing?
By 1971, the situation had gotten far worse. Another decade of war, excessive spending, trade deficits, and money printing had pushed many foreign nations to their breaking points.
Foreign nations’ dollar reserves far exceeded the US government’s gold holdings. And with confidence waning, many began redeeming their dollars for gold.
Only days later, Richard Nixon put a stop to this and unilaterally terminated the US dollar’s convertibility to gold.
Think about the magnitude of this decision: Nixon was effectively defaulting on US obligations to the rest of the world– a complete betrayal of their trust.
Yet despite this massive shock that reset the global financial system, the dollar somehow managed to remain the world’s #1 reserve currency.
You’d think they would have been grateful, thanking their lucky stars that the rest of the world gave them a second chance. But no.
Over the past 43 years, the US has continued to print, devalue, and mismanage the dollar.
•Along the way, they’ve created epic bubbles and financial shocks.
•They’ve run up the biggest deficits and debt levels ever seen in the history of the world.
•They’ve bickered internally to the point of shutting down government.
•They’ve passed arrogant, painful regulations and commanded the rest of the world to comply under threats tantamount to financial homicide.
•They’ve unleashed their tax and securities authorities to terrorize anyone doing business with the US.
•They’ve totally ignored foreign pleas to restructure the IMF and World Bank.
•They’ve slammed foreign banks with record fines simply for doing business with nations that the US doesn’t like.
•They’ve waged pointless wars. They’ve spied on their allies. They’ve meddled in other nations’ affairs.
•And they’ve demonstrated absolutely no willingness or ability to improve.
Simply put, other nations are done. Fed up, really. And it’s not just words.
Consider that in a matter of months, the US will be overtaken by China as the world’s largest economy.
Not to mention, the total combined GDPs of China, India, Russia, and Brazil are roughly the same as the US and EU combined.
Just as the US was the biggest player back in 1944, China is the biggest player today. So it seems clear that the renminbi will become a critical component of a new financial system.
The renminbi already has experienced rapid growth as a dollar alternative for trade; in May, cross-border settlement surged 52% from the year prior.
Renminbi settlement banks are being set up from London to Canada, and the central banks of both France and Luxembourg have signed agreements for renminbi clearing.
There have already been numerous Western companies (like McDonalds) that have issued renminbi-denominated bonds.
And even the provincial government of British Columbia issued a renminbi bond earlier this year. It was a whopping five times oversubscribed.
I’d expect within the next 2-3 years we’ll start seeing trade settlement in renminbi, even when none of the parties are in China.
Today, for example, a transaction between a Paraguayan merchant and a company in Angola will likely settle in US dollars.
Soon, I think we’ll start seeing that transaction done in renminbi. And once that happens, you’ll know it’s game over for the dollar.
Shortly after, national governments in western countries will issue renminbi bonds (perhaps Greece or Portugal will be first). And eventually, even the US government itself.
Today, 70 years after Bretton Woods, leaders from China, Russia, India, Brazil, South Africa, and several other nations are hard at work in Fortaleza, Brazil creating a new development bank that will compete against the US-controlled World Bank.
This is a major step in an obvious trend towards a new financial system. Every shred of objective data is SCREAMING for this to happen.
It’s a different world. Everyone realizes it except for the US government, which is still living in the past where they’re #1 and get to call all the shots.
The consequences of missing this boat are enormous, and it’s going to be a rude awakening for anyone not paying attention.
…He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
Far Above Every Negative Thing
Isn’t it wonderful to know that God does not measure and judge you based on your performance today? Instead, He looks at Jesus, and as Jesus is, that is how He sees you. His Word declares that “as He is, so are we in this world” (1 John 4:17).
Notice that it does not say that “as Jesus was on earth, so are we in this world.” That would be amazing enough because during Jesus’ ministry on earth, healing, blessings and abundance followed Him everywhere He went. Yet, that is not what the Word says. What it says is, “as Jesus is” (present tense). In other words, as He is right now, so are we in this world!
So just consider where Jesus is today. Right now, He is seated at the Father’s right hand, “far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.” If I were you, I would take some time to meditate on this passage because as Jesus is, so are you right now, in this world. Meditate on how as Jesus is “far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named,” so are you! See yourself as Jesus is, far above every principality and power, far above every disease and physical condition, far above every kind of fear, depression and addiction, and begin to reign over every negative situation in your life today!
House Republicans moved to tackle the border crisis at the source Wednesday, proposing to set up repatriation centers in Central American countries to help send back the wave of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children arriving in the U.S.
The plan called for an aggressive public relations campaign in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to discourage families from sending their children on the long journey to America, as well as establishing border security measures not just in the U.S. but in those Central American countries and Mexico.
SEE ALSO: House task force to recommend National Guard on border, faster deportations
These dramatic steps on foreign soil were part of a $1.5 billion plan drawn up by a House GOP task force.
House Speaker John A. Boehner, Ohio Republican, organized the task force to craft an alternative to President Obama’s request for $3.7 billion to address the crisis, which was widely criticized as excessive and pronounced dead on arrival in Congress.
Rep. Kay Granger, the Texas Republican who led the task force, called the proposed measures “common-sense, compassionate but tough solutions.”
“Our focus has been to ensure the safety of the children and it has remained a top priority throughout this process,” she said. “In our personal meetings with the presidents of Honduras and Guatemala they both stated that they wanted their children back, and we believe that is in the best interest of all the countries involved in this crisis.”
Under the plan, the U.S. also would accelerate immigration hearings for the children flooding across the Southern border, provide additional judges to hear requests for asylum, and house the children close to where they enter the country in Texas and Arizona.
The proposals have almost no chance of passing through Congress. The plan faces strong opposition in the GOP-controlled House and even stiffer resistance in the Democrat-run Senate.
Democrats railed against the task force’s proposal to change a 2008 law that delays immigration hearings for children from Central America, which is home to most of the 57,000 unaccompanied children who have arrived illegally in the U.S. so far this year.
The law, known as the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, was intended to protect Central American children from human trafficking, but critics say it has become a foothold and incentive for Central American children coming to the U.S.
President Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, supported changing the law until abruptly reversing their stance after hearing strong opposition from the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and pro-immigration groups.
Mr. Boehner wrote to the president, pressing him to restore his support for changing the law.
“Frankly, it is difficult to see how we can make progress on this issue without strong, public support from the White House for much-needed reforms, including changes to the 2008 law,” wrote the speaker.
Signaling that the crisis wouldn’t end any time soon, the Pentagon announced it will freeing up additional space for housing up to 5,000 more of the unaccompanied alien children at military facilities through the end of the year.
The Obama administration turned to the military to house the children after repeatedly encountering opposition in communities slated for shelter sites, including in Maryland and Virginia.
At least 90,000 children will be caught this year, and more than 140,000 will be apprehended in 2015, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection memo.
Until recently, just about 8,000 unaccompanied children per year attempted to cross the border.
Senate Democrats, meanwhile, introduced a $2.7 billion emergency appropriations bill to redouble efforts to shelter and provide immigration hearings for the children while they are in the United States, with few measures included to enhance border security.
It headed for an almost certain standoff with Republicans.
“It’s unfortunate that Democrats here in the Senate just want to vote to spend money,” said Sen. Marco Rubio, Florida Republican and a top advocate for comprehensive immigration reform.
Other proposals form the House task force included:
⦁ Deploy the National Guard to the Southern border to assist Border Patrol in the humanitarian care and needs of the unaccompanied minors. This will free up the Border Patrol to focus on their primary mission.
⦁ Prohibit the Secretary of the Interior or the Secretary of Agriculture from denying or restricting U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) activities on federal land under their respective jurisdictions.
⦁ Require a DHS strategy and implementation plan to gain operational control of the Southern border.
⦁ Establish independent third party commission to develop border security metrics as a means to accurately gauge progress on border security.
⦁ Mandate the detention of all Family Units apprehended at the border with the ultimate goal of processing family units in 5-7 days. Congress must continue stringent oversight to ensure this mandate is being met.
⦁ Deploy additional judge teams and temporary judges to expedite the hearing of asylum and credible fear claims.
⦁ Εξαμινε τhe standard under current law that allows an alien to show a “credible fear of persecution” to ensure a fraud-free system moving forward. In addition, criminal aliens and criminal gang members should not receive asylum.
The House task force proposals also immediately drew fire from both conservative Republicans and Democrats.
Rep. Steve A. King, Iowa Republican and member of the Tea Party Caucus, said conservatives wouldn’t back the task force plan because Mr. Obama could not be trusted to enforce the laws if it passed.
“The president does not want to secure the border,” he said. “He’s got the resources to do it. He doesn’t do it. He won’t do it. We can send money to him and say, ‘Do this.’ He’s not going to follow the law. He’s proven that over and over again.”
Mr. King said that he welcomed an “impasse” for the emergency spending bills, which was where the debate appeared to be headed with just nine days until Congress is scheduled to adjourn for August recess.
Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, Illinois Democrat and member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, said the Republican plan would further “exploit” the children by sending them home to countries where violence and drug gangs run rampant. “I didn’t come here to exploit children. I came here to protect children,” he said.

Israel FM spokesperson slams statement by UN rights chief Navi Pillay as 'populist, embarassing'
The United Nations Human Rights Council will launch an inquiry via an international committee into alleged war crimes committed by Israel in the most recent round of Gaza fighting, it was decided today after a vote held in the council. 22 member states voted in favor of the inquiry.
"The decision today by the HRC is a travesty and should be rejected by decent people everywhere," the Israeli Prime Minister's Office stated in reply, "rather than investigate Hamas, which is committing a double war crime by firing rockets at Israeli civilians while hiding behind Palestinian civilians, the HRC calls for an investigation of Israel, which has gone to unprecedented lengths to keep Palestinian civilians out of harm's way, including by dropping leaflets, making phone falls and sending text messages."
The HRC should be launching an investigation into Hamas's decision to turn hospitals into military command centers, use schools as weapons depots and place missile batteries next to playgrounds, private homes and mosques," the Prime Minister's Office added in the statement.
Israel's military actions in the Gaza Strip could amount to war crimes, UN rights chief Navi Pillay said earlier on Wednesday during an emergency session of the UN Human Rights Council. She also condemned Hamas' indiscriminate firing of missiles into Israel.
The meeting was held to discuss the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. The Palestinian and Arab countries filed a draft with the Council requesting a probe into alleged war crimes being perpetrated in the war.
"There seems to be a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes," Pillay told the emergency session, citing attacks that have killed Palestinian civilians, including children.
WOW, how convienient and great timing. Just in time for illegals breaking through the border. Wonder how many times in the past this "system" happened to have gone down. 0 from what I can tell
Great way to lose track to terrorists huh?
WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department's global database for issuing travel documents has crashed, resulting in major delays for potentially millions of people around the world waiting for U.S. passports and visas, officials said Wednesday.
Unspecified glitches in the department's Consular Consolidated Database have resulted in "significant performance issues, including outages" in the processing of applications for passports, visas and reports of Americans born abroad since Saturday, spokeswoman Marie Harf said. She said the problem is worldwide and not specific to any particular country, citizenship document, or visa category.
"We apologize to applicants and recognize this may cause hardship to applicants waiting on visas and passports. We are working to correct the issue as quickly as possible," she said.
Harf said the problems with the database have resulted in an "extensive backlog" of applications, which has, in turn, hampered efforts to get the system fully back on line.
It was not immediately clear how many people are affected, but two U.S. officials familiar with the situation said some 50,000 applicants were hit in one country alone. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly or identify the country.
The database is the State Department's system of record and is used to approve, record and print visas and other documents to ensure that national security checks are conducted on applicants
